Sebastian Vettel’s Post Race Comments: “The races are tricky to compare, because we were always racing in the train the last 2 weeks, I guess for Charles was a bit more clean air. That’s why I was a bit annoyed because we could have avoided that today and I don’t know why we didn’t. Other than that, I’m afraid I don’t have any answers, it’s a bit odd, the gap is exactly the same for two weeks – with running or without running, it doesn’t matter. I got to move forward and think for Barcelona.
“We spoke this morning that there is no point pitting knowing that we will run into traffic. And that’s exactly what we did. We also went on a hard tyre which we then had on roughly 10 laps. So it didn’t make any sense. Why would you put the hard for 10 laps and then put the medium for 20 laps? I was running out of tyres towards the end, so we spoke about exactly that, but… Not the best work we could have done today.
“Honestly, I think my pace was the same for both races at Silverstone, I don’t think there was an improvement. The feeling was a bit better than last week, but the performance was the same. The pace was the same. And that’s a question mark, but I can’t do much about it. I will have to try to keep doing my best and keep calm as much as possible, looking ahead to next week. We’ve been going through a very bad two weeks. I don’t know what happened in terms of pace. It’s a little weird. It’s certainly not the best day for me right now, it’s a bit frustrating.”
